I’ve added screencaptures of Freddie’s scenes from episode 2×07 of Bates Motel. Enjoy!
Bates Motel is also a contemporary “pre-boot” to a previous Hollywood smash-hit, this time Alfred Hitchcock’s seminal Psycho. You may be crying blasphemy, but the series works every bit as well as Hannibal. Bates Motel is so addictive because the infamous Norman Bates (here played by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory‘s Freddie Highmore) remains an enigma. Plus, his chemistry and relationship with Vera Farmiga’s Norma is electric, suspenseful, and at times disturbing. We know the endgame of the story, but watching it unfold is a tense journey you won’t regret or forget.
